AFSCME Florida

We are AFSCME Florida

From the break of dawn on Miami’s shores to well after the sun sets across Pensacola’s beaches, the hardworking men and women of the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) make Florida happen. From Collier County to Clay County, the home of America’s first settlement in St. Augustine to mile marker zero in Key West, our members can be found providing the vital services to make the lives of citizens across the Sunshine State better through a shared commitment to public service. As Florida’s fastest growing union, we are a proud part of a 1.6 million member union that advocates for fairness in the workplace, excellence in public services and opportunity for all working families.

Throughout the year, AFSCME locals across Florida have made volunteering one of the key union-wide goals to help build connections with the same people we serve every day working in the Sunshine St

It would be easy to suspect that a smaller local in a right to work state would have a tough time winning a great contract.

In state capitols and all the way to the Supreme Court, wealthy and powerful interests want to silence our voice and take away our freedoms. To fight back, we must lead with our values.

AFSCME Florida executive director Andy Madtes released the following statement on the GOP tax plan released today.

This week, Congressional leaders unveiled a plan to cut taxes for corporations and the super wealthy on the backs of working families. This tax bill would actually raise taxes on some middle class families. While corporations will get huge new tax breaks and be rewarded for offshoring jobs, working people will no longer be able to deduct student loan interest payments, medical expenses, or state and local income taxes. Click here to sign the petition to Speaker Paul Ryan.

Young AFSCME activists across the country are rising to meet this challenge, to welcome labor’s future. 

Through our union’s Next Wave program, they are taking leadership roles in their unions and encouraging other young people to join.
